By the angels who violently disembody the souls of those who die captivated by disbelief and discord
and by the angels who tenderly disembody the souls of those who are with Allah in accord
and by the angels who convey an act of Allah's mercy, vouchsafed to His creatures
Then they press forward competing to be foremost
Then they execute the Allah's commands, and conduct the affairs
The day shall come when the trumpet is sounded and the universe goes into a violent convulsion
To be followed by the second sound when all shall go in extreme commotion
All hearts are then in extreme agitation
All eyes are cast down in humble modesty and utter humiliation
Yet people in their doubt, wonder whether after interment they could be restored to their former state
They cannot perceive how! "when bones disintegrate!"
"Should this be true", they say, "it will mean immeasurable loss and condign punishment"
Indeed all it takes is only one single rallying cry,
and there they declare themselves on the surface of the earth
Have you heard O Muhammad of the narrative of Mussa
When Allah, his Creator, called him while he was in the sacred valley of Tuwa
"Go to Pharaoh", Allah said, "for he has gone beyond all limits and all bounds he transgressed"
Say to him: "Would you like to follow a path that leads you to righteousness and purity?"
"I will guide you to the path of Allah your Creator, and thus you will find your innermost thoughts and being have become sensible of Him and your secret feelings will urge you to pay your duty to Him ."
Then Mussa, showed him the great act featuring Allah's Omnipotence and Authority
But Pharaoh refused to admit the truth and favoured disobedience
He turned his back to contend the truth with falsehood
He thronged the place with an audience and made a proclamation to satisfy his day dream
He said: "I am your lord supreme"
But Allah punished him in requital as a caution against further transgression and made of him an example in this world, and worse shall his punishment be in Day of Judgement and adjudication
Indeed, in this event there is an instructive example to those who fear Allah and dread His indignation
Are you people the more difficult to create, or the heaven which He constructed?
He lifted it up so high and its vast dimensions did He perfect and with celestial bodies did He complete it and its realms did He actuate
Its night did He darken and the day did He pervade with light and illuminate
and the earth did He prepare for life at a later date.
He exteriorized its water and out of it did He spring its vegetation
and the mountains He set and anchored for stabilization,
All being instrumental in supplying provisions for you and for your cattle
Then when the calamitous eventful event comes to pass
Man will then remember all he did
and Hell is brought in view for all to see
Then he who had transgressed
and chose to give himself to the life of this world and its vanities
Hell, for him, is the abode
But he who feared the moment of audience of his Creator and endeavoured to make his pious principles and his words together accord, and restrained himself from vanities and discord.
Paradise, for him, is certainly the abode
They ask you O Muhammad as to when is the time of this proclaimed Hour
But how could you satisfy their query when you yourself do not know
It is only with Allah your Creator, that the knowledge of the appointed time rests
You are only there as a spectacle and a warning to him who fears it and on the wings of righteousness he rode sublime
On the day they eye-witness the Event, it appears to them in retrospect as if it were only an afternoon or a forenoon that they actually spent
